South African rapper of Congolese parentage, Rouge (Deko Barbara-Jessica Wedi), has signed a record deal with Warner Music South Africa (WMSA).
I am so excited to join the Warner family. I already feel like I have an active team, who are part of the new Rouge era,” Rouge stated. “I believe with the backing of the right team, my eyes can now be focused on the world. People have been waiting for the music and it’s coming with twice the punch.Rouge
Creative Lead at WMSA, Garth Brown, warmly welcomed her, reiterating her delight at the deal. “Rouge carries the aura of a star; she walks into any room and effortlessly becomes the centerpiece. We believe that there is so much more that she has to offer that hasn’t been tapped into.” She added saying, “This chapter embodies a bold and edgy Rouge, who is unapologetic about her superstardom. We as WMSA are excited to walk the next chapter with the undeniably talented star.”
It may be recalled that back in 2020, the multi-talented Rouge who doubles as a TV presenter on Vuzu TV and SABC 1, modernized an age-old but priceless inspirational Mzansi anthem, popularly known as “Senzeni Na” featuring Amanda Black.
